Why use Wireguard on Plural?

Plural helps you deploy and manage the lifecycle of open-source applications on Kubernetes. Our platform combines the scalability and observability benefits of managed SaaS with the data security, governance, and compliance benefits of self-hosting Wireguard.

If you need more than just Wireguard, look for other cloud-native and open-source tools in our marketplace of curated applications to leapfrog complex deployments and get started quickly.

Go Implementation of WireGuard

This is an implementation of WireGuard in Go.

Usage

Most Linux kernel WireGuard users are used to adding an interface with ip link add wg0 type wireguard. With wireguard-go, instead simply run:

$ wireguard-go wg0

This will create an interface and fork into the background. To remove the interface, use the usual ip link del wg0, or if your system does not support removing interfaces directly, you may instead remove the control socket via rm -f /var/run/wireguard/wg0.sock, which will result in wireguard-go shutting down.

To run wireguard-go without forking to the background, pass -f or --foreground:

$ wireguard-go -f wg0

When an interface is running, you may use wg(8) to configure it, as well as the usual ip(8) and ifconfig(8) commands.

To run with more logging you may set the environment variable LOG_LEVEL=debug.

Platforms

Linux

This will run on Linux; however you should instead use the kernel module, which is faster and better integrated into the OS. See the installation page for instructions.

macOS

This runs on macOS using the utun driver. It does not yet support sticky sockets, and won't support fwmarks because of Darwin limitations. Since the utun driver cannot have arbitrary interface names, you must either use utun[0-9]+ for an explicit interface name or utun to have the kernel select one for you. If you choose utun as the interface name, and the environment variable WG_TUN_NAME_FILE is defined, then the actual name of the interface chosen by the kernel is written to the file specified by that variable.

Windows

This runs on Windows, but you should instead use it from the more fully featured Windows app, which uses this as a module.

FreeBSD

This will run on FreeBSD. It does not yet support sticky sockets. Fwmark is mapped to SO_USER_COOKIE.

OpenBSD

This will run on OpenBSD. It does not yet support sticky sockets. Fwmark is mapped to SO_RTABLE. Since the tun driver cannot have arbitrary interface names, you must either use tun[0-9]+ for an explicit interface name or tun to have the program select one for you. If you choose tun as the interface name, and the environment variable WG_TUN_NAME_FILE is defined, then the actual name of the interface chosen by the kernel is written to the file specified by that variable.

Building

This requires an installation of go ≥ 1.18.

$ git clone https://git.zx2c4.com/wireguard-go
$ cd wireguard-go
$ make

What companies are saying about us

We no longer needed a dedicated DevOps team; instead, we actively participated in the industrialization and deployment of our applications through Plural. Additionally, it allowed us to quickly gain proficiency in Terraform and Helm.

Walid El Bouchikhi
Data Engineer at Beamy

I have neither the patience nor the talent for DevOps/SysAdmin work, and yet I've deployed four enterprise-caliber open-source apps on Kubernetes... since 9am today. Bonkers.

Sawyer Waugh
Head of Engineering at Justifi

This is awesome. You saved me hours of further DevOps work for our v1 release. Just to say, I really love Plural.

Ismael Goulani
CTO & Data Engineer at Modeo

Wow! First of all I want to say thank you for creating Plural! It solves a lot of problems coming from a non-DevOps background. You guys are amazing!

Joey Taleño
Head of Data at Poplar Homes

We have been using Plural for complex Kubernetes deployments of Kubeflow and are excited with the possibilities it provides in making our workflows simpler and more efficient.

Jürgen Stary
Engineering Manager @ Alexander Thamm

Plural has been awesome, it’s super fast and intuitive to get going and there is zero-to-no overhead of the app management.

Case StudyHow Fnatic Deploys Their Data Stack with Plural

Fnatic is a leading global esports performance brand headquartered in London, focused on leveling up gamers. At the core of Fnatic’s success is its best-in-class data team. The Fnatic data team relies on third-party applications to serve different business functions with every member of the organization utilizing data daily. While having access to an abundance of data is great, it opens up a degree of complexity when it comes to answering critical business questions and in-game analytics for gaming members.

To answer these questions, the data team began constructing a data stack to solve these use cases. Since the team at Fnatic are big fans of open-source they elected to build their stack with popular open-source technologies.
